Not to worry, the house of Alexander McQueen is safe. Though the fashion world will continue to mourn the pionerring designer’s death for years to come, his torch is invariably carried through the designs of Sarah Burton – I don’t know any other designer that could have stepped in and kept Lee Alexander’s heritage in tact. For Fall/Winter 2011, she went as far as to cover a gown’s bodice with broken china, introduce sublime black harnesses and pull other entrancingly vindictive designs from McQueen DNA. With such a bevy of breathtaking garments, any truth in the rumours concerning Burton as Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding dress designer call for fashion hysteria.

It’s been discussed since Day Uno; who will be the designer of Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress? With a Prince-cum-King like William at hand, the stakes are high. Bookmaker Paddy Power stopped accepting bets (yes, wedding bets) on this most important of matters on November 26 – five months before the wedding – after designer Bruce Oldfield emerged as the favorite.
They commented by saying “- we were receiving one-way traffic for Bruce Oldfield, and there is no point in taking bets when all the interest is in one person. He started as 4/1 joint favourite, but since then his odds have been slashed to 1/3. That would mean there is a 75 per cent chance of him being the wedding dress designer. Sometimes this kind of betting comes from people taking an educated guess, but sometimes it is the result of a leak. We were taking bets of £500 or more so it could be a leak. The wedding is in April, so someone knows what dress she is wearing. I suppose we will just have to wait to see on the 29th.”
My twenty-five percent vote is for Phillipa Lepley – I should have gotten in the pool while I had the chance!
